Seizure Alert Dog

Seizure-alert and -response dogs are a special type of assistance dog that are specifically trained to help someone who has epilepsy or is otherwise prone to seizures.

These dogs are trained to do various tasks- anywhere from pulling objects away from the person and providing emotional and physical support during a seizure, to in special cases, alerting their charge of an impending episode. Because of the differing needs of the people who own these special animals, each dog is trained specifically for the person in need. Dogs that may become and are seizure-dogs must be absolutely perfect for the job, and must be able to stay in control in all situations. Because of the difficulty in training, only a few organizations train these dogs, although the number is rising.
